Microwaved Raspberry Sauce

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Jen T

A quick way to make a Raspberry Sauce without using pots & pans. Good in summer over ice cream or for a simple elegant dessert put a scoop of ice cream in a meringue shell or between 2 meringues and pour over sauce! This come from my microwave (700wt) recipes by Alison Holst. A well known cookery book writer in New Zealand. Adjust times for your own oven.

I used cornstarch. I didn't add brandy because of my son. This sauce was really good on waffles this morning. I used frozen raspberries, thawed but I kept the juice. Thanks Jen :) Made for bargain basement tag game
